Election Update 12

Sleepy-bearAaaand that’s the finish.

Both Fox and RCP have called Iowa for Joni Ernst, giving the GOP the 51 seats they need to control the Senate.  I’m guessing they’ll pick up North Carolina and Alaska for 53, and in January the Louisiana runoff should net them another for 54.

And I’m looking forward to the results of the one election I miscalled – as of right now Bob Beauprez is leading Governor Hickenlooper by 20,000 votes, with 77% of precincts in.

And so to bed.  No early news post tomorrow; I’ll post a recap of today’s results later in the day, probably after I get back from shooting a couple of rounds of trap.  Good night, True Believers!
